I-35 rest stop janitor run over, killed on the job
Greg Blackburn was just doing one of his jobs Wednesday evening — as janitor at the Mahtowa rest stop along Interstate 35 in Carlton County — when he was run over by the driver of a pickup truck.
Blackburn, 62, was killed, and the driver of the truck that hit him fled the scene and led law enforcement on a 25-mile-long high-speed chase. The pursuit ended when Minnesota State Patrol troopers ran a pickup truck driver off the road in Hermantown.
